Purpose 4(a). The direct benefit which flows from this purpose is the relief brought to people caught in cycles of poverty that sometimes seem impossible to break. People are given hope and a future. People that find themselves in situations of personal crisis, possible due to redundancy, illness, homelessness or separation, are helped. Help
mainly takes the form of alleviating hunger that is brought about because of poverty due to people’s circumstances, together with meeting other basic needs such as provision of clothing. These benefits are evidenced by the simple knowledge that by providing a basic emergency food parcel, the individual or family who has asked for help will be able to eat for the next few days. Also, benefits are evidenced by being aware of and monitoring those individuals and families this organisation helps, seeing how their situation changes and hopefully improves. This may be done through liaising with one of the partnering charities and/or agencies. This purpose does not lead to harm. The beneficiaries of this purpose are people in the North Down and Donaghadee area who find themselves in need often through no fault of their own, or sometimes through poor choices they have made. There is no private benefit through the carrying out of this purpose. Purpose 4(b). The direct benefit which flows from this purpose is how lives are changed for the better removing the need of support and preventing individual’s and families’ dependency of help and support. This benefit is evidenced through people successfully connecting with other established and skilled charities and bodies and the positive impact this has on their lives. This purpose does not lead to harm. The beneficiaries of this purpose are people living in the North Down and Donaghadee area who consider themselves to be in need. There is no private benefit through the carrying out of this purpose....

nursery equipment. In addition to collecting items, buy them using financial donations received.
